    Notes, I'm very relieved to hear you and Leilani escaped unscathed! The gigs will come back, but it may take some time, especially if your venues suffered any major damage.

      The Electric Power came back, it flickered a little today, the phone/DSL has been working for a couple of days now, and the clean-up is almost complete.

      Things are slowly returning to normal. As far as I know now, our gigs starting next week are back on, although one has been postponed until October. It was a Thursday afternoon gig so we had the new date open.

      All in all we got lucky on this coast. There for a while NOAA had it aiming straight through us, but Irma decided to go up the west coast instead. Good for us, bad for them.

      I'm glad the biggest complaint I have is the loss of gigs, it could have been much worse.

      One more weekend without gigs (sigh) and I think I'll go shopping for a bigger generator in a few weeks

      Thanks again for the well wishes.

        Power still out, damage minimal. Got all the busted up trees chain sawed and stored in the garage until hauled off. Generator working giving me the refrigerator, portable AC unit, small kitchen appliances and necessary lighting. Pretty much a non-event with cat 1 conditions throughout the blow. Neighbors are up in arms about the power outage. Evidently my neighborhood covers three grids and over the 20 years it's been in existence one of the grids always loses power first and gets it restored last. Over time and many such instances this isn't just happenstance so the HOA is launching a legal investigation into it. Scuttlebutt indicates that several neighborhoods have experienced the same and are joining the fray.

          Glad you're OK.

          We're always the last to get power restored. FPL, the power company goes for how many they can connect in a hurry first. That means dense neighborhoods.

          I live in a sparsely populated section of town. One 15 mile road with a lagoon on one side, protected wetlands on the other, and less then a half dozen short spurs (I'm on one of those). Although my lot is only a half acre, most are 50 or more acres.

          That means for the amount of hours FPL has to put in, fewer people are back on. So they go for the numbers. And as much as I don't like it, that's what they should do.

        Life is good again.

        Back to normal then? Cool deal. .

        We're also on the grid again and back to normal. A couple neighbors still need some trees cleared and damage assessed/repaired but all in all it's minor. Eight days without power and as I understand Duke Energy's position there's still outlying areas waiting for it to be restored. My lot has been acceptable, really, compared to others. I look at the Caribbean and Mexico and feel that Lady Luck did some serious talking to Mother Nature on my behalf.

          in 2004 we lost power for 10 days each after Frances, Ivan and Jeanne, and the 15 mile road that leads to your small street was local access only. The total of 30 days without power and the only time the well worked was when I could run the generator was tough, but as you mentioned, nothing at all like the devastation in the Antilles. My heart goes out to them and I made a donation to the Red Cross.

          The lasting effects down there will last for years, no money to rebuild and no more tourism dollars to help.

          Thanks.

          (Belated, I just released 6 aftermarket "disks" for Band-in-a-Box on 9/28 and things got delightfully busy here for a few weeks).
